Building some trails in Richmond area

Well I have 7 acres and its mostly wooded and backs up to a pond and some ravines/ trenches. This weekend me and some friends are going to start making some trails. If anyone wants to join us let me know... it wont be anything crazy but any input and ideas would be appreciated

We have done the same thing to property that we have been allowed to wheel on allways being carefull to perserve any hardwoods and do minimal impact to any drainage or creeks.
I have a wedding to go to Saturday but if you shoot me a PM with area (ballpark, i know you dont want to post private trails up) i might be able to pick up my husky from my dad in short pump and make it down on Sunday if i dont head out to Crozet.

Otherwise if you are looking for ideas i think we are going out to where we go in a few weeks if you want to see what we did......

We got a decent little trail cut and a left a few tight spots and logs to cross... friends got some huge rocks he's going to bring out to have a little rock section too...

Thinking about putting a few tank traps and mudholes to run thru

Pretty sure its just coincidence and not from lift...

Its jumping and bucking like it's in too high of a gear and about to stall. Anytime I try to accelerate it does this. I can hold it steady and its fine..

We checked for pinched and loose lines, checked all the stuff we messed with when we lifted it. Ended up taking the fuel filter out and bypassed it and it ran okay then did the jumping again.

Pretty much stumped :/ thinking about dropping tank and cleaning it and replacing fuel pump / filter. Possibly all my gas lines bc they had dirt in them :/

Pull the fuel line at the engine and see if its getting steady flow. Does it idle ok?
